Ohio's National Park: Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Rikki Teeters

Ohio has one of the nations best National Parks. Cuyahoga Valley National Park spans multiple cities in Northeast Ohio. We spent Sunday exploring CVNP at our Instameet. We explored Ledges, Blue Hen Falls and Brandywine Falls.

We gathered in the morning at the Happy Days Lodge parking lot near the Ledges trail-head.

Our hike leaders Mady @wanderlustinohio and Rich @reveller515 started the day by giving overviews of their hike options - Brandywine Falls & Blue Hen Falls - two of the most Instagrammed icons in the park. Then we divided into three groups to begin our adventure around the park.

We joined Cuyahoga Valley National Park Ranger, Ryan Ainger, for a hike through the Ledges area. We learned that much of the area was carved out by ocean waters millions of years ago. Ranger Ryan led us into some lesser known areas of Ledges that featured mysterious rock carvings and hidden caves.
